21st Century Warfare

Let us do some math.

Let's see the effectiveness of Islamic warfare.
Muslims Vs. the West.

THE RULE HAS CHANGED. There is new game in town.

Bill Clinton orders 50 Tomahawks Cruise missiles, cost $100,000,000 to destroy $100 mud houses belonged to Osama's family. What a stupidity? What a poor ROI (Return On Investment)

In return Osama's attack on the US.
Cost: 19 martyrs and less than $500,000
Cost to the West: over 3,200 dead. At least $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) dollars economical loss in one year. This includes the ripple effect.

Osam's ROI with respect to:
life = 3,200/19 = 160 fold
dollar = $1 tr./500K = 2,000,000 fold

That is modern warfare.

How are you going to fight over 100 million ready to become martyrs and another 200 million in reserve to die for Islam and Mohammad. Have you thought about it?

Do not underestimate the power of numbers. Do not underestimate Islam being the fastest growing religion....
